    I have been working at Akamai full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent company, great tech, great people. Global reach, and conservative business plan.

    Cons

    Shifting managerial vision at the top, terrible at acquiring other companies. Barebones fringe benefits. Terrible name recognition. Oftentimes too sales driven.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more in engineering. Every project is painfully under-resourced.
